[asa-ca] Appellate Court Strongly Vindicates Patients Right to Medical Marijuana Seized by Police

This message is notable not just for the important victory, but for the documentation by Americans for Safe Access of illegal seizures of cannabis from patients which have been happening across the state in violation of state law:

Americans for Safe Access (ASA) has compiled reports from nearly eight hundred patient encounters with local or state police during a period of more than two years. These reports show a glaring trend: more than 90% of all encounters result in medicine seizure by police regardless of any probable cause. According to reports received by ASA, rampant seizure of medical marijuana from qualified patients and primary caregivers has taken place in 53 of California's 58 counties. These violations of state law occur in both urban and rural locales, in the north as well as the south, and by both city and county law enforcement.

  Local and state officials must be pressured to uphold local and state law, not federal law, in this matter or else face the wrath of the voters.

Love & Liberty,
